AXOFLEX is a thin asphalt surface course material that is being marketed by Redland Aggregates Limited. It was originally developed in France by their French associate company, Redland Route, and tested by the Laboratoire Central des Ponts et Chausees for compliance with the Norme Francaise for very thin asphalt concretes. The data from that assessment, together with other information, is assessed to evaluate the suitability of AXOFLEX for use on UK roads, and in particular on high-speed trunk roads with the requirement for a texture depth of 1.5 mm as measured by the sand-patch method. The data show that AXOFLEX has the potential to be a satisfactory thin asphalt surface course material for use in the United Kingdom. (A)
